Playing in Paradise #75 - Summer Vacation!

Good morning! It's Nina's turn to challenge us over at Playing in Paradise this week, and she's got us making creations celebrating Summer Vacation:
PPC #75

One of the kids' favourite things to do on summer vacation is the little road trips we usually take - generally not more than an hour or two away, but we do something fun and come home again. Travel ended up sticking in my head, and I created this:
Supplies: papers from Basic Grey "What's Up;"
washi tape from We R Memory Keepers;
alphabet stamps from PSX;
Vintage Photo distress ink
This piece of gorgeous paper made it very easy to create my card! I used a grid pattern from the same package to stamp out the greeting, cutting the flag end with a pair of small scissors after stamping. The washi tape is really easy to manipulate - I cut the flag ends like you would ribbon, by folding the corners together, and it easily peeled back apart & still adhered securely to the paper afterwards. I think washi tape might be made of magic. Also, I need more. I bought the We R Memory Keepers packs in aquagreen, and black...yep, three colours isn't going to cut it. This girl loves rainbows.

Our linky over at the Playing in Paradise challenge post will be open until noon next Thursday, July 19, so make sure to hop over there & get all the details about how to play along (and what prize is up for grabs!) Don't forget to check in with the rest of the design team & see what they've been up to on their summer vacations:
I'll be back later today - it's been a busy week! Stay tuned :)

What a great card! Wish I were sitting on the Adirondack chair sipping lemonade and watching the water drift away.
